    Post Import Chord Symbols from MuseScore

    Hi all,
    I'm new here.

    Trying to import into IRP chord symbols noted on a chart in MuseScore notation software in order to use IRP playback. Is there a way to do this without having to input by hand?

    Any help really appreciated!!!

    As far as I know iRp does not have a way to import from any other format.

    ALL of the charts available on the forums have been posted by forum members.

    EVERY chart here was entered one chord at a time using the iReal pro editor.

    The reason there's a chart available for a title is that some member took the time to write it out and then share it on the forums.

    Hi PDX,
    love your charts btw.

    I took a chart from IRP and wrote my own lead sheet arrangement in MuseScore using chord symbols including tempo change and modulation. Trying to figure out a way to playback (MuseScore does not playback chord symbols) my arrangement in that I read but my hands are not up to tempo, so to speak.

    Any thoughts or ideas out there very much appreciated.

    Thanks girrrl,

    I remember you were looking for Melanie's skate-key song. I was happy with that chart AND how it worked with the player.

    If I understand you correctly, you want the iRp player to follow tempo changes etc.

    Sorry, at present, no can do. Fermata, rit. ral. < > ppp fff etc. are not understood or followed by the iRp player.
    Expression instructions can be included on iRp charts but only as performance information for musicians.

    I'm not a MuseScore user....FWIW.

    Hi everyone !

    I wrote a small plugin to read chords from a MuseScore leadsheet and then create a new song in iRealPro.

    https://musescore.org/en/project/irealpro

    I use it quite a bit. Sorry it's MacOS only.

    The irealcvt converter from Data-iRealpro (http://search.cpan.org/perldoc?Data%3A%3AiRealPro) can import MusicXML (to a certain extent) and produce iRealPro importable playlists in HTML format.
    It works reasonably well for MusicXML as produced by MuseScore. Importing and adjusting is usually faster than re-creating the score in iRealPro.

    That's fantastic.

    But how does one use the plug-in?

    Cheers,
